Watching Over Harlem

Watching Over Harlem (study)

Last summer my friend Debbie and I walked around Harlem and I took a bunch of photos, excited to do a few paintings of that neighborhood. I just completed this new study of some wonderful ornamentation on the facade of this Harlem apartment building. I never tire of looking up and seeing what's up there, always a surprise. With so many glass towers being constructed these days, whimsical ornamentation is a thing of the past, more's the pity.
